UFC 201 unfolded tonight (Sat., July 30, 2016) live on pay-per-view (PPV) from Philips Arena in Atlanta, Ga., featuring the highly-anticipated Welterweight clash between current champion Robbie Lawler and teammate Tyron Woodley. But before the headlining bout went down, UFC 201’s “Prelims” undercard offered a plethora of entertaining action.
In the only Heavyweight bout on the card, heavy-handed Anthony Hamilton challenged submission expert Damian Grabowski to see which 36-year-old veteran could get back into the win column. Well, Hamilton wasted no time in smashing “The Polish Pit Bull” into oblivion, landing a devastating uppercut and combinations galore to claim the first-round knockout victory, which was the second fastest (14 seconds) in Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Heavyweight history.
The scintillating finish can be seen below (courtesy of UFC on FOX):

For Hamilton, this is a big way to prove he still belongs close to the Top 15 in the division. He should be in line for a quick turnaround later in 2016. As for Grabowski, this puts him one step closer to the UFC chopping block.
